This MIB module manages the Quality of Service parameters of GGSN in a GPRS system. GGSN is the Gateway GPRS Support Node in the GPRS architecture. It provides interworking of GPRS network with external packet-switched networks - PDNs or other data networks. The following diagram illustrates a simplified GPRS logical architecture with the name of inter-node interface: +---------------------------------------------+ | +======+ a PLMN | | | SGSN | | | +======+ | | | | | Gn | | | | |+====+ +====+ +=====+ +======+ +======+ | +===+ || TE |-R-| MT |-| BSS |-| SGSN |-Gn-| GGSN |-|-Gi-|PDN| |+====+ +====+ +=====+ +======+ +======+ | +===+ | | | | | | +----------------------------------------|----+ Gp | +-----------------------------+ | +====+ +=====+ +======+ | | | MS |---| BSS |---| SGSN | | | +====+ +=====+ +======+ | | | | other PLMN | +-----------------------------+ A PDP Context is an information set maintained by MS and GSNs which describes the mobile wireless service call or session. Three types of QoS mapping method are supported on GGSN: canonical, delay and UMTS. Canonical QoS mapping consists of Best Effort, Normal and Premium QoS classes. Delay QoS mapping consists of four classes: delay1, delay2, delay3 and delay-besteffort. UMTS QoS has the following traffic classes: signalling, conversational, streaming, interactive and background. UMTS QoS is based on differentiated services network model. A QoS Profile is associated with each PDP context which defines multiple attributes like precedence, delay, reliability, peak throughput, mean throughput and traffic class. Based on the precedence, delay and mean throughput an user is classified into different canonical and delay QoS classes . Based on delay, jitter, bandwidth and reliability user is classified into the UMTS traffic classes. In GGSN, the QoS remapping mechanism is that, for uplink traffic, the GGSN remaps the TOS in the user traffic before forwarding the packet to the Gi interface and for downlink traffic, the GGSN will only setup the TOS for the IP header for the Tunnel, not the IP header for user traffic. Traffic from MS to PDN is considered as uplink and the reverse is considered as downlink traffic.
